How has your MSR 5in1 held up

I closed the other threat and believe this poll would give clear results. I realized it would be better to start fresh because I could not fix other.

Flown the hell out of it.. probably at the very least 100+ flights and no issues really. Replaced one servo collar that's it.

Mine has even taken a trip into the kitchen sink! While my wife was doing dishes! pulled it out of the water, unplugged the battery and let it all dry out overnight. put battery back in and it has anouther 50 plus flights on it! I thought it was a gonner.

I have no idea how many flights I've done on my MSR but heres how many parts I've simply worn out(not broken):
3x Flybars (ovaled out --now I just fill/drill them out with epoxy)
2x Blade Grips (Eventually horizontal slop develops between the spindle and grips)
1x Servo (motor simply spazzed)
The axle probably needs to be replaced some time soon as well.

No problems with the 5 in 1 whatsoever.
I'd guess that I'm around 175-200 flights.

Edit:
I averaged it out and I think I'm somewhere between 168-180 flights

msr

Around 200 flights, have not broken anything. Flew it into the dogs water, came out dried it with my monokote heat gun (Carefully, Take the canopy off before you try this and hold the heat gun no closer that 2 feet from the board)
Smelling like a rose; no problems since.

Mine died after one week of flying. First, the antenna wire fell off (why to they wrap it around a thin plastic part that can wiggle and vibrate??) An unlucky crash a few days later killed the 5-in-1, probably from part of the LHS r/c track striking a component on the board during an unlucky crash.

The stock canopy does not fit. It rubs up against the board, and provides minimal protection against common household objects jabbing under the edge of the canopy and damaging the fragile SMD components and/or the servo gears.

Here's my fix for the board fit problem: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=309
